It may not be helpful but your best bet is to have some already established in a pot and sow their seed among them but they'd probably get swamped anyway as Pterostylis curta grows thickly from adventitious pseudobulbs and soon fills a pot or shakllow pan.

Failing that, find someone who has sterile laboratory conditions and can grow them on agar etc, in vitro.

Many thanks Lesley for the tips. I think i will give the seeds a miss. I will look for a supplier of the plants in the uk.
 Thanks Dan
